    Given Vranos in-depth knowledge of these markets and Abreu's experience with GMAC, this has the potential to be a much needed consolidator in the origination space. If they are successful, they can flip the whole thing to Ocwen or Nationstar, both of which currently have their hands full consolidating the whales being sold off by the money centers and super-regionals.
